Lexie Morris, Head of Retail and Consumer, British Government’s Department for International Trade, China, stated, “China is one of our most important partners in trade and business. With Chinese consumers becoming increasingly discerning, their interest in British products is greater than ever. The Department for International Trade is actively supporting British brands currently exporting or looking to export to the Chinese market, targeting China’s upper-middle class consumers. Best of British has been an excellent platform through which to offer British brands a comprehensive introduction to the Chinese retail landscape from both a business and consumer perspective. We have been very pleased with the results.”
